Firefighters rescue boy with head stuck in toilet seat

Firefighters in Essex used cutting equipment to rescue an 18-month-old boy who had a toilet seat stuck on his head.

The boy, from Loughton, had put the training toilet seat on his head but it slipped down over his ears.

Firefighter Steve Seary said: "It was around his neck, but it wasn't causing him any difficulties. We used a pedal cutter... to cut the toilet seat away.

"The boy was really brave and sat still so we could work."
